Market Commentary

Afternoon Comments 04/16


Continued talk of improved planting conditions depressed corn futures Wednesday. Although surging soy prices probably proved supportive of the corn market, forecasts for persistent short-term dryness have persuaded traders that Midwest plantings will accelerate during the days ahead. The resulting sales, along with weak technical conditions, seemed to depress CBOT prices. May corn sank 6.25 cents to $4.975/bushel Wednesday, while December dipped 4.25 to $4.99.
